Interesting tale, Fab narration.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tale, almost as much as the narration... Super voice, I can't wait to hear more.

Audible Customer Review

Any additional comments?

Really enjoyed listening to this book. Some books are worth a revival and some aren't - this one definitely is. Great narration by Stephen Holloway.

Detective stories with a sherlockian flavor

Arthur Morrison was a contemporary of A C Doyle. The first few stories, featuring detective Martin Hewitt,are reminiscent of Sherlock Holmes,but without the richness of characters. The last two stories, whose main character is a detective who is secretly a criminal, save the collection and make it a good purchase. The narrator, Stephen Holloway, has a voice which fits the characters and subject matter.A good choice for this collection.
